The archer and his kill

The Archer



Quietly he stalks the Fawn.

Ready is hs bow

Not drawn

Just ready.

The fawn cautiously moves on

Unsuspecting of his own swift demise.

The archer draws his bow with a single arrow

Its tip dipped in hemlock.


The archer misses

The fawn flees

Sensing danger. 

The archer bows his head in defeat.

moving on to the next kill.

Will his family eat tonight?

Only the archer's skill will decide.
